I need a little help. I'm extremely new to linux, considering I don't have it yet. I've searched everywhere, and while I've found information to lean me towards the right direction, I'd feel more comfortable with a definite answer.
I'm going to download the Debian ISOs with jigdo.
From this site, should I choose the i386 or ia64? I have a Pentium 4 Processor. Could you also explain to me why I need the i386 or the ia64?
Also, when I download the jigdo files, do I also need to download Packages.tar.gz from the above link, or will that be in one of the ISOs? Also what is the MD5SUM and MD5SUM-UPDATE files? Do I need to download them also, or just the jigdo files?
Thanks so much for the help,
